Hi Sue

I have a custom outlook 2003 form published to the Org. Form library..

The form works fine, except when someone tries to forward it, they are not

able to enter their comments / verbiage in the open space outside the form

format.

Also about your answer below... what field should the actions item refer

to... when i double click on forward under the Actions page of the form,

under the This action creates a form of the following type... Form Name...

should I select Forms and select the published form name from the Org

Library? or is it any other setting that I need to change like when

responding...?

Yes, as I wrote earlier, the form associated with the Forward action needs

to be the form you've published to the Org Forms libary. Any other changes

to the settings for the action are optional.

Let us know if you have other problems after you make that change and

republish the form. (Don't forget to increment the version number before

forwarding.)

How about getting the User's to be able to enter free flow verbiage outside

the form limits, on the form body i.e. similar to reply / reply all or also

in case of forward.

Is there any specific parameter that I need to set.

I want to accomplish all this in one go and test it out.

A place for users to enter text has be be present as part of your design. If

you removed the normal message body control, then you'd need to add it back

in or put a text box control on the form and bind it to an Outlook property.

Can i make such a field visible only on Forwarding / Reply all...etc.

If yes how can i achieve it with minimal programming, as such I am not a

forms programming expert.

You'll have to get your feet wet in programming to accomplish this. For each

control that you don't want to show, put code in the Item_Open event handler

to change the value of its Visible property, e.g.:

Function Item_Open

If ItemIsForwardOrReply() Then

Set myinspector = Item.GetInspector

Set myPage1 = myInspector.ModifiedFormPages("General")

Set txtMyTextBox = myPage1.Controls("txtMyTextBox")

txtMyTextBox.Visible = False

End If

End Function

You get the page names and control names from looking at your actual form

design. See http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?ID=38 for more

information on working with control properties.

The ItemIsForwardOrReply() function tests certain property values to try to

determine if the item is a forward or reply:

Function ItemIsForwardOrReply()

If Item.Sent = False Then

' item is an unsent message

strLeft = UCase(Left(Item.Subject, 3))

If strLeft = "FW:" or strLeft = "RE:" Then

ItemIsForwardOrReply = True

Else

ItemIsForwardOrReply = True

End If

End If

End Function

Hi Sue

How can I and where should I add back the normal message body contol, or

make sure that it is not currently present.

The current form uses P1, and there is no other tabs with any fields.

Thanks

Nimish

Depending on the type of form, it will be listed in the Field Chooser as

Message or Notes. Just drag that field back onto the custom form page.
